The Volstead

“Here’s to you, Andrew Volstead, NICE TRY!” The owners of The Volstead have good reason to raise a toast to this congressman, who famously passed the prohibition laws in the 1920s: he became the inspiration for everything their bar and restaurant wouldn’t be. To show their appreciation for libations, the team took great pains to restore the space to reflect the way it originally looked in 1893––the height of the American saloon era. But while the decorative archways, pressed tin ceiling, and William McKinley impersonators evoke the gilded age, the bar also holds a few modern twists. An ice rail runs along the wooded bar top to help keep cocktails and brews cold while draft beers are poured out at a 32 degree temperature and shots are shot back at a bone-chilling 5 degrees. Just under 100 guests can cozy into indoor tables and bar seating to enjoy weekly karaoke or trivia nights or linger on the outdoor patio as they gaze upon a handful of TVs and the large projection screen, which showcases Sunday football games and date-night movies.

Back in the kitchen, Chef David Perez leads a skilled culinary team as they handcraft 12 types of half-pound burgers, classic sandwiches, and 14 different appetizers to help create what part-owner Brian Holloway described to the Online Athens Banner-Herald as "a casual eating experience with an upscale feel." Black Angus beef patties are crowned with a variety of toppings, from jalapeño-pimento cheese and sliced hot dogs to fried eggs, while other hearty entrees include beer-battered fish and a 10-ounce rib-eye steak. Savory eats can also be consumed during the restaurant’s Sunday brunch, which serves up plates of shrimp and grits, ham and cheese omelets, and a pair of Elvis pancakes which arrived painted onto a velvet plate.
